Community Based Organization (CBO) Fund Grants provide operating support for community based organizations involved in facilitating or developing housing and/or commercial development activities in CDBG-eligible areas of the City of Pittsburgh. The CBO fund grants are contingent upon the City’s receipt of Community Development Block Grant Funds.
In order to be eligible to apply for this funding, community organizations must submit a letter of intent describing the activities they will propose in their application. The organization/activities must comply with the following fund criteria.
•Must have been in existence for two years;
•Must be a 501(c)(3) organization (or through a fiscal conduit for two years only);
•Operate in a CDBG-eligible City of Pittsburgh neighborhood and serve primarily low-moderate income residents;
•Have sufficient capacity to supervise staff and raise other funding
•Must engage in residential or commercial real estate development or facilitate such development.
•Demonstrate a working knowledge of the SNAP Action Planning Data in relation to the proposed project.
In the context of the facilitation of residential and commercial development, the ACCBO Committee will accept applications for operating support to underwrite greening activities, e. g., blighted property clean-up, urban agriculture, energy conservation and production, as delineated within an existing community plan. Community planning activities which explore and incorporate greening strategies are also eligible. Stand-alone projects not specifically linked to an overall community-generated vision are not eligible.
The letter of intent is not an application. The letter is mandatory in order to be considered for operating support funding. Following an eligibility review of the activities described in your letter, an application will be sent to you.
Submission of a letter of intent indicates the applicant’s willingness to abide by the application review criteria as established by the ACCBO Committee.
